A round-up of all the goings on at Jogscotland Stonehaven

Jogscotland Stonehaven has congratulated one of it’s leaders, Helen McLeod on completing the London Marathon. They said; “You did so well and are an inspiration to all of us. Well done!”

They added: “Also to all of the members that did Balmoral. It turned out to be a lovely weekend for you guys and some of you did better than you expected, so well done and keep up the good work.

“The beginners are about to finish their 10 week block, They have done so well and hopefully all of them will be progressing on to the next block. Keep up the good work, you have done so well. Also a massive thank you to Elizabeth, Liz and Penny for keeping them on track.

“At the end of the second block we are planning to have a fun night. The date will be June 19. Last year we had a couple of games of rounders and a BBQ down in Mineral Well Park. Feel free to bring family and friends.

“In August we will be starting another new beginners block, names are being taken now.

“July 1 is the annual Stonehaven Half Marathon. This is a fantastic event, the atmosphere and team spirit is brilliant and if the weather holds out - bigger bonus.

If you’re really brave you can obviously enter the full half marathon (12 miles) but also you can take part in the relay team. This consists of a team of 4 running approx. 3 miles each. Last year we had a few teams that took part in this, so we are looking for the same this year.

“If you would like to enter with your team then go to http://stoneyhm.webnode.com/race-info/ or if you would like to compete but don’t have a team let me know and you can join me!!

“Remember when entering put in that you are in Jogscotland Stonehaven. If you don’t want to run, come along and cheer us on.

“On September 22 there a fun run in Hazelhead Park. Its for the Cardiomyopathy Association. Children can take part too, if accompanied by an adult. Its part of the big fun run group which do various runs all over the country. The Baker Hughes 10k race is on May 20. Last date for entering is today (May 4). You don’t have to run you can walk the 10k. There is also a fun run too.

“We are a recreational jogging club which meets on Monday, Tuesdays and Thursdays evenings outsite the community centre (Robert Street). We also run ‘out and about’ Stonehaven on Saturday mornings.”
